Is there any keyboard shortcut for changing it? Google couldn't solve my problem.

I'm using too many different profiles for my blog and their social media profiles etc. Sometimes it's getting annoying to open it with mouse from top corner. I love shortcuts.

Try Ctrl+Shift+M.

Update (Chrome v42.0):

Ctrl+Shift+M then then Enter then or until you reach the user you want.

Thanks to @jaykilleen for the update.

Just updated to 42.0.2311.90 m on Windows 10 build 9926 and now the icon of your avatar has been replaced with a grey rectangle shape with your name. The shortcut now requires an additional click which is annoying. ctrl+shift+m then down arrow then enter then left arrow until profile you want is highlighted then enter. URGGGGGHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA –  Jay Killeen Apr 15 at 22:46
What an "EASY SHORTCUT" Ctrl+Shift+M then ▼ then Enter then ► or ◄ until you reach the user you want. Please add few more keypresses Google :) –  Rajkiran May 25 at 11:37

With the latest version of Chrome, there is now a Menu option "People" at the top, with items for each profile you maintain. Since this is now a built-in menu, it is possible (at least on OSX) to bind a custom keyboard shortcut to switch to a specific profile.

For example, I have a shortcut set up for "Personal" (Ctrl+Cmd+Shift+1) and "Work" (Ctrl+Cmd+Shift+2) - you just have to make sure your profiles aren't named exactly the same.

Chrome now has a "People" menu. If you have two profiles, say "Work" and "Personal", go to System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts -> App Shortcuts, click the +, choose "Google Chrome.app", and add one keyboard shortcut for "Work" and another one for "Personal".
